For the first interview in The States, we went to Los Angeles to have a talk with Adam aka @Ninja.af
First of all, would you mind introducing yourself
My name is Adam Fujioka and I'm a street photographer based in Los Angeles, California. I was born and raised on the island of Oahu but have been in Los Angeles for the past 6 years.
What equipment do you use for your photos?
I am a Nikon shooter. When I go out to shoot I usually use what ever I can carry around. It'll usually just be a couple lenses, a tripod, and a LED light.
How and where do you find inspiration for your work?
My main inspiration for photography is influenced from where I was raised. Growing up in Hawai'i, I was blessed by always being surrounded by beautiful environments. Whether it's going down to the beach for the tide pools or hiking up a mountain for a waterfall, I can always go back and find inspiration from nature.
Do you have any favorite location to take pictures at?
I usually shoot in Downtown Los Angeles. That's where the majority of my photography comes from these days. Being in such a different setting than I used to, I find the atmosphere of such a dense city intriguing.
What is your all time favorite picture?
Currently one of my more favored photos was from a collaboration I did with Butch (instagram: @butch_locsin_from_la). He is a truly talented artist/performer who creates stunning visuals with smoke grenades.
